About our film festivals
We have more than 19 years professional experience of sourcing and programming the best international films. Our festivals are dedicated to bringing you outstanding world cinema that explores Jewish and Israeli life, history and cultures worldwide. Many of our films are presented together with Q&As with the creative talent behind the films as well as discussions with film critics, celebrities, academics and other speakers.
UK – In the UK we have been running the largest Jewish festival in Europe for 19 years. The UK Jewish Film Festival takes place in 12 cinemas across London as well as in venues in Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham & Glasgow. At the 2015 UK Jewish Film Festival, we screened 85 international films at 130 screenings and welcomed 15,000 visitors.
